Angel Footman, a 23-year-old teacher at Griffin Middle School in Tallahassee, Florida, is facing charges for allegedly organizing a “fight club” in her classroom. School officials were shown videos of alleged fights that took place between March 22 and March 23.
Footman is facing four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to local CBS affiliate WCTV.
Reports state that “several sixth-grade girls told detectives that they participated in planned fights during school hours, and they allege they were invited back for additional fights.
The rules of the alleged fights were “30 seconds, no screaming, no yelling, no phones.”

Footman is denying that she organized the fights.
From the report:
Footman told investigators she did not organize fights in any way, but failed to call for help or take quick action to stop the altercations or report them to administrators, according to court documents. She now faces four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
No records of Footman reporting the fights to administrators were found.
Footman is set for arraignment on May 4.
